It's that time of year again, The Annual Blackhawk Farms ACCCC Driver's School and Safety Seminar is right around the corner. The event will be held at the beautiful Blackhawk Farms Raceway in South Beloit, Illinois on June 21st & 22nd.

For those who have never attended our Driver's Schools I can assure you that you will not be disappointed. You will be surrounded by fellow Audi enthusiasts who share the same passion for driving as you do. Participants will attend a classroom session before heading to their cars for a series of challenging exercises that will help to demonstrate the capabilities of your car. After the exercises the students will be paired with our experienced club instructors where they will receive one-on-one instruction and "on track" coaching for the remainder of the weekend.

In an effort to encourage driving enthusiasts who have not yet experienced an ACNA Chicago Chapter drivers school to come out and join the fun, we are offering a $100.00 discount for the weekend. This will apply to anyone who has not yet participated in a drivers' school or advance drivers' day with the Chicago Chapter, whether you've never stepped onto a track before or are well experienced but have never experienced a drivers' school hosted the Chicago Chapter way.

Ok, you’ve been driving for years, it’s second nature, right? I thought so too until I attended my first driving school at Blackhawk Farms in 1996 driving a 1990 Audi V8. It was thrilling to drive the 1.95 mile track with seven turns winding around the course. But more than that, I learned the automobile’s capabilities, how to handle the car in emergency situations, threshold braking, apexing and more thanks to ACNA Chicagoland’s experienced instructors. Blackhawk Driver School offers the opportunity to appreciate your performance vehicles in a controlled, safe environment. Learn more, have fun, become addicted! –Karen Chadwick, Executive Director, Audi Club North America.
